Review by barlow304
A very good, "no-tears" approach to basic economics. Although it discusses markets, the book spends most of its time on macro-economics, monetary policy, international trade, and development. Well written and amusing, but also thoughtful and accurate.

I found Mr. Wheelan's discussions of government policy and economics to be very enlightening. And his discussions of international trade and world poverty were also very interesting. This was a very readable look at basic economic principles applied to real life world issues.
